Sofiane Boufal insists his best is yet to come in a Southampton shirt, even after scoring a wonder goal to win his team the game against West Brom.

The Moroccan was introduced as an 81st minute substitute and took only four minutes to light up St Mary’s.

Picking up possession deep inside his own half, Boufal twisted and turned his way through a previously impenetrable Baggies defence to score a goal to remember.

“When I went past one or two players I felt confident, and the rest of it just felt natural,” he said.

“I’m so happy with this goal – for my family and all the people who have helped me in the difficult moments.

“It’s football. Sometimes you have good moments and sometimes you have bad moments, but the most important thing is to be confident in yourself.

“I hope the best is still to come. I hope this goal will help me for the future with Southampton.

“When I scored an amazing goal against Sunderland, I didn’t score for a lot of weeks after.

“I just want to think about the future and work hard. It’s very important to work harder in the difficult moments.”
